I’m always up for trying out a new facial serum and this Espa Instant Facial ticks all the boxes of what my skin needs…
It’s a 3-in-1 treatment that promises to leave skin instantly replenished, smooth and luminous, then with continual use will be firmer and brighter.
For anyone unsure of when to apply an active serum, always on cleansed dry skin to the areas you wish to treat – I always apply to my cheeks, nose and then massage in spreading up to my forehead and tapping around my under eye area. (eye creams really aren’t necessary) Then once absorbed apply your moisturiser/facial oil as usual.
*Top Tip – never wipe off any excess from your fingers – instead use it for your neck up to your jawline using upwards stroking movements.
The Key Ingredients | Macroalgae Cell Extract | Winged Kelp Extract | White Truffle Extract | Vitamin C Encapsulated Oils |
My Verdict I’ve used this a few times, the first time I applied it I wasn’t expecting the product to have a slight fishy smell….I know, I know this shouldn’t matter whatsoever as it’s all about the ingredients and the results – I just wasn’t ready for it as the smell from the bottle is a pleasant orange kind of smell, probably didn’t help that I had massaged it in around my nose and pretty much up my nostrils!! NOT DOING THAT AGAIN!
The packaging is nice, it’s a glass frosted bottle and the pump works well dispensing a good amount of the cream textured serum. You only need 1 or 2 pumps as it seems to go a long way.
My skin did look instantly smooth and really fresh and hydrated and my tinted moisturiser went on really nicely and I’m now used to the smell which does disappear. My skin also felt nourished which is perfect for the winter months as I’m prone to dry patches.
It is a great skin booster and I’m looking forward to seeing the full effects after longer use.
